we turned up late after a long travel from the uk, it was late at night and they were not expecting us! they did have our booking in the end, but this was a stress we did not need, the rooms were basic, the outside areas were grim.

We had a booking which read check-in 3 pm. I understand that 3 pm is stated but if available, hotels are happy to accommodate early check -in . We called from the airport requesting early check in, a lady took my call and said we do not have rooms empty yet, you come in, we should be able to give... More

Upon entering the room looked clean, The Bed was clean, mattress was hard and pillows need replaced. Entering the bathroom we found a used wash rag over the shower curtain,... More

Don't expect anything luxurious it's a motel. But having said that it was one of the better ones I've stayed in there was strong free WiFi, room and bathroom/shower were clean. Large TV and fridge. Not as close to sfo as you think looking at Google maps. $20 $15 to/from sfo in taxis. About 10 min. The fridge was a... More

We paid around 150 $ so it was horrendously overpriced to my opinion. The bathroom was dirty. the bed is uncomfortable. You think that it is close to the airport, but there is no public transportation that goes to the place. We ended up paying 25 $ for 5-min ride form the airport.

This is a budget motel so don't expect any frills. It's also right on a busy main road so there is some noise (though not as much as I expected). On the plus side, it was scrupulously clean and the staff were friendly and helpful.

We stayed here in September 2015. We were two couples and had two rooms. Trouble started when we arrived - we had made a booking - and when we arrived of course we had NO booking. The front desk manager was not interested in our booking - it was our problem not hers. We eventually managed to contact the booking... More

We flew in quite late in the day and this Motel was easy to find next to a very busy 3-4 lane each side dual carriageway and only a five minute drive from San Francisco Airport Car Rental Centre.
